This afternoon (Monday), Artem ‘The Russian Hammer’ Lobov and Paulie Malignaggi met at the press conference in New York to promote their upcoming BKFC fight, on June 22.
To no surprise, the trash talk was extreme.
Artem Lobov took the mic first, he tried to keep things levelheaded and civil, only stating that Malignaggi was not physically or mentally ready for a sport as ruthless and savage as Bare Knuckle FC (Boxing).
Next up was Paulie Malignaggi, as soon as he took the microphone, the entertainment began.
Malignaggi unbridled some serious trash talk — at one point Artem Lobov stood up and tried to approach Malignaggi, while at another point, Paulie attempted to whack Lobov (on top of his head) with the mic, which caused the security to separate them.
Paulie Malignaggi continued with his trash talk, saying that if he knocks out Artem, he’ll spit on him. Following which he said:
“Actually, I might take my dick out and piss on you. I’ll piss in your toothless mouth”Paulie Malignaggi talking to Artem Lobov at BKFC 6 Press Conference in NYC
Post all the talk, Artem Lobov and Paulie Malignaggi stepped in front of each other for the routine fight card face off, and again, they had to be separated as things got too physical. Paulie Malignaggi spat at Artem Lobov, and Artem tried to kick him.
BKFC 6 (Artem Lobov vs Paulie Maignaggi) takes place on 22nd June 2019 (Saturday) at 8PM ET, live from Whittemore Center at UNH, Durham, New Hampshire.
